  • We lament that they dont make good songs today not because they dont have music directors but because they cannot write the songs like sahir, majrooh saab, shailendra saab ….


  • I often came across songs by majrooh which bore unmistakable resemblance to Sahir!


  • Being the son of the late lyricist shailendra, i was quite disturbed to read in the mid day about this debate about sahirsahab. i personally feel that all the lyricists of that period, which we now know for sure will be known as the golden era of hindi film music, had their highs and lows. thus it would be unfair on our part to compare them in any way. what we should talk about how they respected and praised each other for any exceptional work. i clearly remember my father coming back from a screening of dosti and before saying a word to anybody, he called up majrooh sahab and congratulated him. majroohsahab on his part, in a televised interview said that we were just shayars trying to write film songs. shailendra was the only true lyricist amongst us. so lets enjoy their great songs and not compare.
